Reminder about the t-shirt design challenge for 2020. Those wanting to participate, please be working on your design ideas to be submitted for voting at our June meeting. Designs should be turned in to Terri H. You do not have to wait until the June meeting to turn them in if you have yours ready. The winning designer will receive a free t-shirt.
Charity Quilts - Maple Street Quilters - It was reiterated that the annual PTQ charity quilt will continue to be donated to Habitat for Humanity. MSQ will be in charge of organizing our Sit-n-Sew projects where anyone interested in coming to work on charity quilts will be welcome. In the meantime, should a quilt be needed for charity/donation, one will be provided from the quilt inventory of MSQ.
No updates on the Homeless Coalition partnership. Judy S. will continue to reach out to their coordinator for more information.
Linda Hahn Seminar - June 27, 2020 - The class Linda will be teaching is "Wicked Wahini." Maximum class size is 35, and PTQ will pay the class fee for those participants. Each participant will, however, be responsible for purchasing the pattern/book that goes with the class. We will have a sign up sheet at the April meeting to get a count of how many plan to attend. We would love to fill the class but keep in mind, if you sign up, you will be expected to purchase the required materials.
Crayon Challenge - We drew colors for our crayon challenge! The three crayon colors drawn from the bag are to be the main colors of the project. Other colors can be used but the drawn colors must dominate. We will make a four block wall hanging. Blocks should be at least 6 inches but no larger than 12 inches. The projects will be revealed at our August meeting and we will take a vote for viewer's choice. The winner will receive a prize! If you were not present but still wish to participate in the challenge, please see Terri H. to draw your colors.
Block of the Month - Judy S. demonstrated the next block for our Block of the Month quilt. Please see the Block of the Month instructions, here on the blog, for further details.
